TV executives are really a lazy bunch . They`re sitting there trying to think up new ideas as to how to get a ratings winner so they hire a former EASTENDERS actor and put them in a very formulaic action/detective series . They did it with Ross Kemp and ULTIMATE FORCE , they did it with Tamzin Outhwaite and RED CAP and now they`ve done it with Martin Kemp and SERIOUS AND ORGANISED .
Martin Kemp is by no means a bad actor , he`s a damn sight better than just about any former pop star turned thespian you can name and I thought one of the very few good things in EASTENDERS was his role as Steve Owen but I wasn`t too impressed with SERIOUS AND ORGANISED . It`s basically a run of the mill cop show cum exEASTENDERS star vehicle . Any of the episodes plots could more or less have been done in THE BILL , THE SWEENEY etc . The only selling point is Martin Kemp as DC Jack Finn and the fact that Finn has a brother which leads to some on screen sibling rivalry , and the " Im DC Finn. So`s he " catchphrase wears very thin very quickly . That said I did enjoy the episode in which Finn makes the joke " talk about being in two places at once " which could have come from the mouth of Jack Regan
